Summary: this is great...i have not 1 bad thing to say about this sound system, it was a surprize when i opened the box and saw it came in black..the whole shipping experience was great, and the system works fine..love this system and glad i bought it.
Summary: I bought this system about a year ago and have no problems with it. Speakers a quite different looking and have enough power for my aparment. The sound is good and clear. It has a self powered suboofer and the bass is deep. I am not much into gaming etc and the receiver has enough inputs for me. No HDMI, but for this price it will be asking too much. Would give 4.5 stars if there was an option.
Summary: I bought this theater system almost two years ago, and it hasn't given me any problems. Though I give it a bit higher rating than some of the other reviewers, I agree with what they say for the most part. First, the pros: Divx playback. This was essentially THE single reason I was in the market for a system, and why I chose this one.
Summary: Ever since I discovered this system, I have been highly impressed with how much it met both my normal and oddball demands. As a student of Musical Theatre, Opera, Classical vocal and choral literature, and Jazz and Classical piano, DVD-AUDIO and SACD capabilities are of great importance to me because there are a lot of titles especially in the Classical genre available in these formats.
Summary: The first time I had baught the system, I had problems, the disc tray would open and while closing, it would jam and close half way. I Then traded it in for another one. And now, the sound is excellent, and very clear. And the system is easy to Use. Also the price was affordable. However, I had some movies with a multi-angle logo show up on screen. In the manual it does not tell you how to remove the feature. Still waiting for a response from Yamaha.
Summary: The sound from the speakers is impressive for their size, it was able to fill my decent size living room without problem. Same goes for the sub, it's not a monster, but it will probably satisfy 90% of the people out there. However, there is one issue that will probably make me return this: even though there is a digital input, you cannot listen to Dolby Digital surround sound through it; the best it can do is Dolby Prologic II.
